My latest diorama.

The base is a Cork notice board the rest is made completely from scratch using wood, card, cork and extruded polystyrene.

I decided to put the buildings at an angle to the board. This made it more interesting to put on the crossing paint and road markings. The car was a card Gotham City police car that I had been working on and off for some time but lost interest. I coloured it green to pay homage to Action Comics #1. I resisted adding pre-made pieces but finally put a fire hydrant behind the car. the cork base made for very realistic tarmac when painted.

Clearly it doesn't have to just be a Metropolis street. It could be used for any epic battles you fancy.

I'm in the process of working out a way to sell these. I'm thinking the best bet is at conventions. So if you want one and follow the UK convention events keep an eye out for me in the upcoming months.

That's a piece of art bro! Nice job and it could be used for a Man of Steel, Dark Knight, or even Avengers diorama if you wanted..

Very Nice! Looks realistic and I love the "blasted dark effects" on the concrete.
